Database State of the Nation
I spent some of the long weekend checking out MySQL 4.0. Its looking good. I have used version 3 in the past and whilst I liked it I have never used it in anger. The new features in 4.0 and in particular the support of sub-queries in the upcoming 4.1 release make it a whole lot more attractive to me.
From now on when selecting a database engine for a project I think I will be asking why I shouldn't be using MySQL rather than why I should.
